A quick look at that spec says there's almost nothing it does that XSLT can't do (except, perhaps, its use of a stack). There are lots of things XSLT can do that FXT can't, especially XSLT/XPath 2.0.

My question is: why would anyone switch? I don't even see anything that's compelling enough to add to XSLT. Does anybody who's looked at it in more detail come to a different conclusion?

Perhaps this should be the question for xslt 2.0; is there some transformation language out there that does something xslt does not do well, what is that thing and how should it be handled in xslt 2.0?
